Book Description

Ella Quinn’s intriguing and irresistible bachelors are masters in the game of seduction. But nothing has the power to change a single man’s mind like a captivating woman…

William, Viscount Wivenly, plans to remain the most eligible of bachelors. He refuses to surrender to the schemes of husband-hunting ladies and matchmaking mamas. Fleeing the pressure of the ton, he’s bent on finding refuge in the West Indies. What he finds instead is a fascinating stranger, a woman so unlike those of his society that he can’t resist such a beguiling distraction…

Determined to let nothing complicate her mission to protect her family’s livelihood while covertly rescuing orphaned slave children, Miss Eugénie Villaret does her best to evade suitors. But when dashing William lures her down a path of forbidden adventure and delicious danger, she may be convinced that business can indeed be mixed with pleasure—and persuaded to add passion to her priorities...

Praise for The Temptation of Lady Serena

“This charming, sweet love story is the perfect addition to the Marriage Game series.” --RT Book Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars A Caribbean Getaway August 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
It took me a couple of days to read this book, not because I didn’t like it, rather because there is a lot to take in. The author makes the Caribbean islands sound so beautiful and perfect. It made me want to visit St. Thomas and Tortola during the 1800s, instead on a cruise ship with the equivalent of 5 times the populations of this timeframe. The food, the weather, the water, the trades were all so well described and accurate. The author must have spent a lot of time doing extensive research to make sure she captured the essence of the Caribbean perfectly.
If you have ever visited the Caribbean you know there are islands with associations from the colonist times. Martinique with the French, The British Virgin Islands, St. Martin is half French and half Dutch, Jamaica to the British and so on. This mini European invasion allows the author the freedom to have many cultures mix within the story. She references through the main character William that so many settlers recreate the society they left behind, from the housing styles to servant clothes and the wardrobe nobles wear – not always appropriate for the humid climes. The heroine, Eugenie, lives in a house that is representative of the local cultures and it was interesting to hear the characters compare England to St. Thomas.
The love story between the two gets started due to a mutual interest in Nathan Wivenly’s shipping company. Nathan is presumed dead after a pirate attack and his company starts to flounder. Enter William, Nathan’s nephew who sails from England to figure out what is going on and help out his aunt. Will is looking forward to this adventure with his friend Andrew as he is being hunted and stalked by the silly misses of the ton and their marriage minded mama’s.

5.0 out of 5 stars If we start this will be ever be able to stop? August 3, 2014
Trying to manage her family and the business since her father’s death has been difficult for Miss Eugénie Villaret de Joyeuse as her mother believes only a man can fix the problems they are having. Eugénie points out it is a man that is getting them into this fix but her mother will not listen. When she sends for help from the extended family it is William, Viscount Wivenly that comes to her aid but discovers her real identify after a covert operation to expose the person trying to ruin their lives.

William can fix the business issues but his heart issues with Eugénie are a whole other problem he is unsure how to tackle. His friend Andrew was quick to make his choices of whom to love but William wants to make sure that Eugénie is the one for him. Yet when he approaches with his desire for marriage she has the nerve to turn him down due to a lack of, dare he say it romance. A more determined man to win what he wants one will never be found outside of William and now that he wants Eugénie he will have her. The problem is there is a sinister plot by someone who wants to harm her and that is something William will never let happen. He rushes to her side and will prove that he can care for her, her family, and the business with every intention that love brings with it.

When the situation escalates and Eugénie is taken from him the mystery of what happened to her father becomes so intertwined no one can figure out what is going on. Williams will not be stopped in his search to find her and take down the evil that refuses to stop interfering in their lives

Format:Kindle Edition
This is the fifth book in Ella Quinn’s The Marriage Game series [The Seduction of Lady Phoebe; The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh; The Temptation of Lady Serena; Desiring Lady Caro; Enticing Miss Eugenie Villaret] and out of all five, my least favorite.

I really wanted to love this story as much as I loved the one right before it [Desiring Lady Caro], but something just didn’t click with me in this one.

William was someone I didn’t like from the start, but I didn’t hate him. He just struck me as someone who was too dense and uncaring, and once I formed that opinion, it was hard for me to get on board of his ‘redemption’ to being a hero.

Eugenie, our heroine who is supposed to be an innocent when it came to relationships with men and sophisticated enough to be someone who is fighting for a worthy cause of enslaved children was a contradiction, and I never connected with her.

That said, I love this author and her work and even in this story she manages, through her wonderful prose, to take me back in time and enjoy the beauty of the setting, the Caribbean. I actually found the subplot of the hero and heroine’s friends’ love story more appealing and despite its pace, more believing.

In the end, I do recommend it to all of those that have already read the other four books in this series, if for nothing else but for Ms. Quinn’s writing and research alone. She did an outstanding job of transporting me to and letting me experience not just history but a culture of the Dutch West Indies during Regency of which I knew nothing about. I so wish the characterization of the main characters was given just a tad more time and thought.
